Pay Income Tax on Google Adsense Revenue

Google AdSense Tax Information page provides detailed information about how tax-related information is processed from all AdSense publishers. You are solely responsible for providing and maintaining accurate tax information associated with your account. Google collects tax-related information from all AdSense publishers.
